POEM: "The Phrases (II)"

The Phrases (II)

The honest sentiment, the romantic
& pure sound you chased all your life

Miles said Don’t waste any phrases
You want key changes & discord

How could she say Don’t waste my time

When she really meant Give me your best

(But given the stakes, how could
She even know what she said?)

Around you the invisible senses swarm
Occasionally one is a fly on your skin

You revisit all the times you wasted
The lights change colour. You cross.
